Brikwars MTG

Post by Battlegrinder » Thu Oct 02, 2014 4:22 pm

I've been thinking of working up some brikwars MTG cards for a while now, and I've decided to give it a shot. This might end up being a semi-collaborative project, as I'm far from being an expert at magic.

To start with, I'd like anyone who's interested in having their faction appear in the card set let me know, and also to provide a rough guess as to that factions color alignment.

Current colors:
Bavaria: Blue
ZMC:Black/Green
MAOX: Black/Red
Assyria: White
LUX: White
Bleywatch: White
Pacifass: White
USA: Red/White/Blue
Frangerian Protectorate: White/Red
Trattoria: Blue
Vol: Red
International Space Mafia: White/Black
Shraag: Colorless


Still Pending:
Scythia
Britannia
Inquistadores
Neo-Prussia
Various Medivo factions

Immortals: (pure colorless is usually reserved for artifacts and really nasty eldritch abominations, so I don't think the current suggestion would work).

Magic Set Editor?

I got wrapped up in this a few times. Never built a full set on my own though.

Ah, I made a bunch of MTG cards some years ago with the editor. Really nifty.

The MAOX would be Black and Red.

Well...yeah. You didn't expect this?

I've been wondering about the flipped morality. I don't know how many white cards we'll have. M-Throne maybe?

Think he said at one point that either it was all just an elaborate joke or that it was a side side project (which means we should never expect to see it). I don't remember which or where he said that. Hell, I'm not even sure I know what I'm talking about. I may be confusing it with another thing. I do remember thinking "I'd play the hell out of that" though.

Given that white is usually associated with purity and authority, I imagine a lot of the anti-peach (or pro-peach, for that matter) factions would fall under its umbrella, along with some of the more organized factions.

I'm currently trying to decide if the Protectorate is White, White/Black or White Red, for example.

White: Assyria, LUX, Bleywatch, Allied Nations, United Systems, Pacifass

I wonder if it'd be more BrikWars to just switch White to Yellow though.

The Immortals are mostly colorless, but sometimes you can pay Phyrexian mana.

Warhead is a Planeswalker if I've ever heard of one. So is FedoraNuker.

I imagine Frostborne would be RUG colors, but that's because I just realized they're similar flavor-wise to Temur.

Hm, from a control/authority standpoint, yes, I see the point. And even though some of those faction embrace the BrikWarsian chaos, I suppose they are more ordered than others.

I've worked up a few more color sets. One of my sub-goals for this is to have the individual factions tie into the larger main factions of the brikverse (Immortal Alliance, AN, TA, etc). Not sure that's going to work out anymore, but it's worth a shot.

USA: Red/White/Blue (Not joking).
Frangerian Protectorate: White/Red
Trattoria: So blue they're clinically depressed.
Vol: Redder than Lenin.
International Space Mafia: White/Black

Also, I still need colors for:
Scythia
Britannia
Inquistadores
Neo-Prussia
